HORIZON EUROPE – about the Programme

HORIZON EUROPE – about the Programme

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the Horizon Europe programme. It comes in four separate lectures covering the programme's introduction, legal aspects, financial aspects, and the project life cycle.

We designed this course to help especially newly nominated NCPs understand programme's overall mission and basic rules and signpost them to further sources of information where they can find more details concerning specific areas of their interest.

From topic idea to proposal submission

From topic idea to proposal submission

Overall goal: 
Understand the journey from call topic, developing a project idea, writing a proposal to submission within the Horizon Europe programme.

Content of this course:
How to develop a project idea: understand the call topic, develop a big project picture and a first “one page idea” of a proposal, how to find project partners

How to write proposals: we will have a look at the overall proposal template, and describe the different subchapters in more detail, adding Do’s and Don’ts wherever possible. We will also discuss the timing – when to start, how long the process of writing takes, etc.

Submission of proposal: we will briefly explain the submission process

Why this course?
A major part of an NCP’s job is to advice on project ideas and proposal writing. It is therefore important to know the basics on proposal writing, and to get some tools in hand how to support applicants (e.g. the idea check through a one page proposal).
